Out for a Family Flight | Tyson Sawyer (right), of Mason, New Hampshire, plans his outgoing route across Silver Lake in Barnard, while discussing takeoff angles with David Lenart, of Bethel, who stopped in to pay a friendly visit. Tyson related "It's awesome, during the winter, we get a lot more places opened up to us where we can land, when all of the lakes become runways." Tyson, his wife Emilie Phillips, and son, Isaac Sawyer, five, had piloted their Bearhawk airplane from a privately owned airport in Brookline, New Hampshire, across Vermont to Upstate New York for breakfast, then stopped off at the Barnard General Store for lunch on their way back south. An avid pilot, and member of the Recreational Aviation Foundation, Tyson has been flying since before he was driving, his first solo flight was celebrated on his 16th birthday, which is the legal age limit.
